We've all experienced the frustration that comes with trying to put together "ready to assemble" furniture. More often than not, you find you're missing that one tiny screw, or have the wrong tool. This becomes even more annoying if, say you have to move, and take the whole thing apart. Well, AT Reader Howard just tipped us off to Legare Furniture. "Legare" in italian means "to connect or join." Legare Furniture offers a revolutionary line of shelving, media centers, and desks that require no tools, hardware, or headache to put together. They're calling it "FTA", or "Fun to assemble."
Indeed, upon going to their website, I was really impressed with their demonstration video. It shows how simple the pieces are to put together, and in fact, an entire desk was put together in 3 minutes! They come in a variety of styles, and configurations. This would be a perfect piece (or graduation gift?) for someone who is in a more "temporary" living situation, such as a dorm or short term rental. Storage and mobility are also ideal, since the pieces are flat and no other tools are required. Check out their website for more info.
